First things first.

Course syllabus

This will NOT be a LIVE learning course.

 

Of course, you will learn from Prakash Gosavi, but the entire course content and syllabus is packaged in small, short-duration videos (ranging from 5 minutes to half an hour), in more than 180 specially designed snippets, aided by graphics to make understanding easy.

 

The biggest advantage of this format is that you can learn at your own convenient time, and at a pace which you find comfortable, on any device whether it's laptop/desktop, tablet or mobile smartphone. You can also take your own time, watch the same lesson repeatedly until you feel confident you can move ahead. And you get six full months (180 days) to finish the course. What's more, if you have any query, Prakash Gosavi will conduct a LIVE session (2 hours) once in 3 weeks where you can get it resolved!

 

There will be 16 primary handicapping methods to learn. However, more methods, which are under research right now, may be added if they look promising enough to live up to the high standards of strike rate and profitability that we insist on in our research.

The Course Content

Method 1

The Pythagorean curse

Horses which are fit, or are close to acquire winning fitness, sometimes suffer due to a unique situation. We spot such horses, based on our rules which make Dynamic Handicapping sense; and when the problem situation is removed, we bet them if they qualify on our pre-decided parameters.

Method 2

The HIGH FIVE method

In handicapping, can the AGE factor be depended upon? What exactly to look for in older horses to know they are rounding into winning form? This method will open the doors of your creative thinking and reveal the most precious secret about 5y old horses.

Method 3

Turn Trap into Goldmine

For the gullible and experts alike, there is a trap that almost everyone falls for. We spot this trap, make a creative change, and convert it into a virtual goldmine.

Method 4

The Ding Dong battle

Ever wondered what happens to the horses who win or lose narrowly, after a ding dong (or neck-and-neck) battle? And more importantly, WHY? With our unique research tool, Window To The Future, we spot precise conditions when we can benefit from their subsequent runs.

 

Method 5

Top jockeys and 3y old horses

Top jockeys, nationally or at each individual center, display a remarkable knack of assessing budding champions among the three-year-old horses. After all, the name and fame associated with this sport is disproportionately dependent on the quality of young champion horses. This method exploits this unique assessing ability of the top jockeys and puts the odds in our favour.

Method 6

YOUNG vs OLD

We put up a unique perspective, based on sound handicapping principles, on races where the young horses and old horses race together, and pick up some good insights, again, thanks to our revolutionary research tool, Window To The Future.

 

Method 7

The Monsoon Magic

What's unique about the monsoon seasons (or summer seasons like Bangalore) in India, during which, rain can affect the underfoot condition at random? What type of races are immune to the underfoot track condition? And until when this method can be counted on to remain profitable?

 

Method 8

The Lollapalooza Effect

Charlie Munger, legendary investor and Warren Buffett's partner, made this word popular in the investing world. It loosely means that if each single factor adds value or makes the process better, then multiple such factors, acting at the same time, can have an exponential positive effect. To our delight, we find this to be absolutely true. The result? We add one more high-probability method to our arsenal.

Method 9

Not Disgraced in Defeat (NDD) - method A

The principles of Dynamic Handicapping sometimes point to a unique scenario. What we find, in some races, is that the winner is clearly and decisively superior, but some horses finishing behind it are not disgraced in defeat, and may live to fight another day in another set of rivals.

 

How to spot such situations? Again, the Window To The Future provides the answer. The NDD as we call it, is a broad spectrum method which perhaps throws up most number of bets as compared to the other methods. So we have divided the insights into 4 main methods A, B, C & D), and need to go a bit slow with them so that there is crystal clear understanding of what we will be doing and why. That's why 4 full sessions are devoted to each of these categorties.

 

Method 10

Not Disgraced in Defeat (NDD) - method B

(for details, read method 9 note above)

Method 11

Not Disgraced in Defeat (NDD) - method C

(for details, read method 9 note above)

Method 12

Not Disgraced in Defeat (NDD) - method D

(for details, read method 9 note above)

Method 13

The WD-34-Sy method

Don't be puzzled by the name. We didn't find a better name than this to help us remember all the unique features of this method. This method captures some pricey horses at a decent strike rate.

 

Method 14

The T-BoL method

This is perhaps the most exciting method because it gets you even 20/1 horses! Of course, it is not a very high-probability method like our other methods, but what it lacks in strike rate, it more than makes up in the incredible odds it can sometimes get you.

Method 15

The "Bunch Of Losers" method

Have you heard about phrases like "winners hang around" and "losers hang around" together? In life it is generally true, and in horse racing too, sometimes, a future winner chooses to "hang around" with another future winner.

 

What are the precise conditions to spot in the race video? You will learn this technique in this session. 

 

Method 16

The Aup Cup method

Very few horses who win go on to win again. Can we spot them in advance?

 

This method answers that question. It picks up a unique subset of winners which can be depended on to do the repeat trick. The name, Aup Cup, is a hint to the main features of this method.
